Ruin-Strewn Precipice Walkthrough

Moving along Ruin-Strewn Precipice is pretty much a straightforward process, as the caves on the inside will help you reach the top and important locations on the way, i.e. Sites of Grace.  Serpent-God's Curved Sword can be found a few levels below from backtracking at this location. Elden Ring Map Link. You'll find a giant Land Octopus and some of her kids along with a lootable body containing Smithing Stone (3). You don't have to clear the giant octopus to obtain the weapon. Circle her and loot the corpse to obtain it. If you hear the singing bat, you're passing the right area. 

If you make your way towards the Singing Bat song, you can obtain the Lost Ashes of War if you drop off the wooden platform behind it. It'll be on a body at the edge of the cliff.  Elden Ring Map here.

After defeating Magma Wyrm Makar, a Site of Grace appears in front of the large opening in the cavern opposite the entrance. Going up the wooden platform and taking the lifts brings you to Altus Plateau

There are at least 9x Smithing Stones (4), 3x Smithing Stones (3), 2x Smithing Stone (5), and 2x Somber Smithing Stones (4) within the cave that goes through the Ruin-Strewn Precipice.

There are also 2x Smithing Stone (5) within the location. The first one is fairly straightforward to get, as it lies on the floor in the cabin beside the Ravine-Vailed Village Site of Grace, before entering the caves (Map Link). The second one is not that exposed, as it is on a corpse hanging from a stone ledge midway up the large platform inside the caves. To get it, you need to jump down from the platform once it reaches the ledge's height or above. Once you get the stone, you can simply jump your way down through a small series of rock ledges at the side, leading to the ground.

      I took the first elevator up and jumped off to get on the ledge with the dead guy and the item. I missed, fell down, hit the ground and died. The game respawned me in the Rennala boss room behind the trigger that starts the fight.

      There are scholars around and you can kill them, but they don't light up so you can't actually kill Rennala.

      Walking towards the entrance triggers the fight.

      If you die you respawn in the boss room, but that doesn't seem to be a problem. You can just teleport away from there.

      • This is my favirite spot to invade in the game. Does anyone know what character and weapon level most people use in this area? I think it's somewhere around 40-60, but invasions seem to be pretty scarce here no matter my level. So if anyone has a recommended level that gets the most matchmaking, I would very much appreciate it.

          The one and only level in this game that I think should have been longer. Why let a view like this go to waste?

            You fear to go into those mines. The Dwarves dug too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dûm...

              As much as i enjoy this location, it feels bad that this makes many people miss the cool cutscene at the grand lift (and better introduction to the plateau).

              • Anonymous

                There seems to be some platforming at the top of the lift at the precipice grace site on the pillars above singing harpy duo. Anyone know how to do that or if it’s legit?

                  Does using the lift to reach Atlas Plateau cause any conflict with any of the quest lines, like skipping them?

                  • Anonymous

                    What’s with the inconsistent/nonsensical enemy names on some of these pages. There are no “Imp Miners” in the area, which is even more evident when the link brings you to the correct enemy page, “Vulgar Militiamen”. Not even visually similar to imps in the least.

                      The site of lost grace that appears after the magma wyrm is glitched for me. I can see it but cannot interact with it even after reloading the area.

                        No where online can I find somewhere to show me how to get to the top area above where the boss is and it is driving me nuts i cannot find it

                          I found a Serpent-God's Curved Sword few levels below from backtracking at the Magma Wyrm SoG. It's guarded by a momma Land Octupus and some of her kids and the best thing is that it restores HP upon slaying an enemy!

                            I was able to summon Tragoth and Millicent for the boss. Since I hadn't given her the prosthetic arm yet, she fought the dragon with only her left arm.

                              When I want to idle for awhile, I travel to the grace by the wyrm and sit on the edge to let my character relax to the singing.

                                Coolest area in the game IMO. You can really feel the scale and verticality of the open world through this level alone.

                                  There are Npc summons here for the Magma Wyrm boss fight. In my play through I see Great Horned Tragoth and Blackguard at the fog wall near the boss.

                                  Both can be summoned

                                      There is a lost ashes of war behind the wooden platform that the winged singing monster is sitting on. There is another winged monster with her that uses glintstone magic so be careful.

                                          Contrary to what it may seem, there is no way to climb that balcony where the octopus is (on the roof). There are also no secret walls in this area.
